    101 Money Saving Tips to Help Reduce Debt and Build Wealth was created to help the 95% of the population that is retiring broke find more money to use to get out of debt before it's too late. Approximately only 5% of the world's population can retire financially secure. I created this book to help individuals apply simple techniques to find money that may be leaking out of their lives without them knowing it. It only takes a mind-shift and dedication to a simple plan to get out of debt as quickly as possible. The earlier you decide to start this system the more money you may be able to accumulate in your lifetime.

    Best bit of advice in the book that we all know, but need to stick to is ‘live below your means’. This book is excellent for people who have just left home and want some tips on their grocery bill or how to get the most boring, uptight dinner outing. If you can’t afford to purchase what is on a menu, then don’t go out…simple! I was disappointed with this book, as I was hoping on some real advise, helpful tips like instead of buying expensive cleaners, use 2 tablespoons of vinegar diluted in 500mls of water as a glass cleaner etc., but sadly no, this book was filled with collect coupons, use coupons, ask for coupons, blah, blah, blah. I know the author said she wanted to help with her readers getting out of debt, but I believe I would have helped myself better by saving my $5. Was there 101 tips? No!

    There are main basic food items that we already have in our home that can be used as DIY natural cleaning solutions or what's termed as green cleaning. You just have to know which of them can be used to clean what. This includes vinegar, baking soda, salt, olive oil, and other items that are discussed in Green Cleaning 101 - DIY Natural Cleaning Solutions with Vinegar and Other Frugal Resources That You Already Have. White vinegar is the most dominant ingredient throughout.

    Quick to listen to, but would be a lot better if a PDF was supplied with audio, rather than having to write manually. Half the ideas were common knowledge, but there were also some good tips. Great to keep in mind when you’re cleaning someone’s house and you run out of a product; that there is an easy substitute close by, possibly in their kitchen cupboard.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Loved it!
    Looking forward to this becoming a movie or TV series, with the right actors/actresses and special effects it would be a major hit :)
    If I had a chance I would have read the book none stop, but reality is...we have to work :( I love Bones character, the way his voice is read and written reminds me of Spike out of Buffy, but gorgeous. Kat / Kitten is a fresh person you can easily relate with and the author makes you want to laugh and read on. Kat's romance is heated without being over done. I love the way the story unfolds, I am now on my second book; I'm certain I'll be reading all 6 plus any future book of this series, plus the related series starting with book 1 'First Drop of Crimson'.
    Definitely a 5 star plus rating. Thank you Audible for the $4.95 1st book in a series sale, other wise I may have over looked this amazing writer.

    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

    I love Faith Hunters' stories. I usually hate books that keep going, but Jane is a character one can't get enough of. Please write the next book, but Jane needs a mate soon :)

    Story

    Aurthor gives a loose plot with no real feeling or empathy for her characters. Story is boring and ridiculous!
    Reader has trouble pronouncing words and the characters are hard to follow; change in voices poorly delivered.
    I could not listen after chapter 6; I think I did well to try for that long :(

    An Italian Mannerist architect and painter, Giorgio Vasari was acquainted with many of the most famous artists of his day. He is best-known today for his biographies of artists including Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Titian and Giotto. This recording is read with clarity and authority by Neville Jason.

    "Excellent if the music was removed."

    Story
    Would you listen to The Lives of the Artists again? Why?

    Yes. As Vasari lived in the time of the Master artists, and gave his view of how they were perceived in his day.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vasari himself, the way he talks about other artist; 'Leonardo da Vinci was frivolous'; could not complete anything before moving on to something else, or the artist that boiled 50 eggs at a time for eating, whilst he was making his egg mixture for tempera!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I haven't finished the book yet. But there is a lot to take in, which makes you want to stop pause and talk about. I will definitely be listening to this book a few more times, start to finish, to learn a lot of past artist names, the way they perceived art and the way they were treated by their own people of their time.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Vasari's View


    Any additional comments?

    The music between chapters is the real killer of the book. If the music went for 2 - 5 seconds and at a lower decibel, it may be bearable. Instead it last for up to 25 seconds by this stage I’m murderous. Only a Classis organ player would enjoy that part.
